Breach of Contract Lawsuits
When one or more parties to a contract fail to live up to their obligations, without just reason, a breach of contract has occurred. If any informal attempts at resolution have failed, as they often do, we are here to make sure the situation is handled. Regardless of which side you are on, we will defend you through alternative dispute resolution and civil litigation if necessary. As civil law attorneys, we will carefully review your contract so that each party’s role is clearly defined and we will determine whether or not a breach has occurred. We counsel clients regarding every aspect of breach of contract disputes, including the following:
- Partial breach
- Actual breach
- Material breach
- Minor breach
- Anticipatory breach
We can evaluate your contract for validity and review your claim and together we will decide what the proper path is to move forward and quickly resolve your situation. As seasoned civil law attorneys, we are experienced at finding effective alternative solutions to litigation. If your case can be resolved out of court, we will make sure it happens swiftly to save you time and money.
Breach of Contract Remedies
Breach of contract cases can be overwhelming and contentious. Working with an attorney when you are involved in a breach of contract situation will greatly increase your chances that you can recoup what you are rightfully owed, whether that is monetary compensation or a completion of the performance promised in the contract. There are a few different remedies when it comes to breach of contract cases, such as:
Consequential damages - These damages reimburse the innocent party from any indirect costs that resulted from the breach of contract. Consequential damages could include loss of profits that occurred due to the breach.
Liquidated damages - Damages that are detailed in the contract in the event a fraud occurred.
Attorney fees and costs - These are awarded if detailed in the contract ahead of time.
Punitive damages - Not as common in breach of contract cases. These damages are intended to punish the guilty party if there was offensive or egregious behavior.
We will make sure you get the damages you deserve. If you have questions about a contract or think you are a victim of a breach of contract, call our office today to schedule a consultation.
